Gregor Samosa Was Banned by the Health Department

Constructor's Note: Every week, the New York Times, in its "By the Book" feature, asks an author to pick as dinner guests any authors, alive or dead. This puzzle imagines one such dinner - more specifically a potluck where each author brings an appropriate contribution.
